I am going to take my L2250 for a 5 hour drive tomorrow and I was wondering if anyone knew the axle weights for this tractor. I know it isn't absolutely critical I put it on the trailer in just the exact spot, but I would like to be close.
It's more important how you position it on the trailer than what the front/rear weight split is on the tractor. For good towing you need to have a load on the trailer tongue (otherwise it will sway and braking performance and handling of your truck will suffer). Pull the tractor forward on the trailer 'till the bumper sags a little below the normal unloaded height but not so much that you use up more than about 1/3 of your travel in the suspension. RC
ALWAYS be tongue heavy. If you can't get enough weight on the tongue to keep it from swaying, you don't have enough truck. I have a 1993 Chevy one ton, flat bed with dual wheels that I don't use that often. The plates and insurance aren't that much. I can't stand to pull a trailer without the dual wheels on the truck. It comes in handy for picking up tractors or whatever else I might acquire. With scrap prices up it has made a little money.
